NIV, world’s most popular Bible, to be revised

Note: I used to use the New International Version as my main translation and now use the English Standard Version. I do hope the coming revised NIV will be free of the poor decisions from Zondervan that hurt the NIV’s credibility with millions of Bible readers. It will be interesting to see if the NIV can ever regain the position of trust and dominance it once enjoyed. I believe that many of us former NIV readers are happy with our new translations and don’t feel a strong need to come back.
